We had a slow start with our first kittens arriving in mid March this season.
Things have been hopping ever since!
Lots of beautiful babies born but very few available as we had a lot of families waiting and
deposits coming in steadily.
Thanks to all of our adoptive families!! I love the updates and photos.
I'm trying to find time to update the "Happy Ragdoll Families" page to feature your photos

Do I need to be worried about my pet being overweight?
The rate of obesity in our pets is increasing, with up to 30% of cats and dogs weighing more than they should. If there is just a little bit if ‘extra padding’, simply cutting back feeding amounts slightly or increasing exercise may be enough to return your dog or cat to an ideal body condition.
If your pet is overweight (>10% above ideal body weight) or obese (>30% above ideal body weight) weight…Continue

Who is AAFCO?
The Association of American Feed Control Officials, or AAFCO, is the body in the United States that governs pet food packaging and nutritional requirements. This organization was first developed in 1909, and has helped shape feed laws and regulations since. AAFCO does not enforce the guidelines that are put in place, but sets the standards that must be followed; each individual state within the US must enforce these rules. Canada has accepted AAFCO’s…Continue

Some pet foods bear the claim that the diet has a nutrient profile that fits all life stages. In order to meet this requirement, the diet must meet AAFCO requirements for growth. In other words, an ‘all life stage diet’ is equivalent to a puppy or kitten diet. The problem with the ‘all life stage’ approach is that growth formulas…Continue

Final of the series on Canine Reproduction from Dr Emmanuel Fontaine;
The physiology of reproduction in canine species is unique, with features of ovulation and oocyte maturation that will not be found in anywhere else in the animal reign. Most people believe fertility is not an issue, which is certainly true compared to human beings. Dogs do show good fertility rates, but to optimize fertility, there are some physiological details that should not be…Continue

Pet Food Facts
A diet can only be as good as the ingredients that go into it; however, the ingredient list gives zero indication of the quality of ingredients.

Did you know that dogs have 1,700 taste buds and cats have 500, compared to the average person with 9,000? Nutrition is such a fascinating subject. We are living in a time where we can find information on almost any topic with the click of a button. However, there is an abundance of misinformation available on the internet, and in the area of pet nutrition, the fallacies far outweigh the facts.

I can't say enough good things about this food. Puppies can be introduced to starter at 3 weeks of age with no adverse effects like runny stools.
I have been using the starter since it was first introduced and have made my comments known to the reps.
If you are using a different brand of food for your puppies I strongly reccomend you try this one!
